Overview of KS3

Throughout Key Stage 3, we aim to build on the language skills that students have learnt throughout Key Stage 2. We develop students listening, speaking, reading and writing skills together with actively promoting cultural awareness. We utilise a wide variety of authentic resources, including video and podcasts, together with online resources to support student learning.


Overview of KS4

At Key Stage 4, we continue to build on students’ skills from Key Stage 3. Students complete AQA GCSE Spanish (8698). This new GCSE specification is assessed by final exams at the end of Year 10, which test students on the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
